With its out-of-phase arpeggios, unrelenting metronomic beats, muffled, indistinct vocals and an approach to recording (no overdubs, only edits) which approaches Dogme, Bristolian band Beak> – the brainchild of Portishead maestro Geoff Barrow – are clearly admirers of the Germanic experimentalists of the early 1970s.
Their second album sounds like Kraftwerk's Autobahn driven by tractor. Forget Krautrock, and say hello to Yokelrock. SP
